The Hunter Region has one of the highest incidence of Melanoma in the world.
The Hunter Melanoma Foundation aims to actively reduce mortality rates from melanoma in the region, minimise patient suffering and maximise patient care.
- 1 in 25 males and 1 in 30 females in the region will suffer from Melanoma.
- Each year about 3,000 people in NSW are diagnosed with melanoma.
- Melanoma ranks as the third most common cancer in Australians.
The foundation provides a significant support base for patients with melanoma and their families as well as educational and awareness programs.
